The coastal environment is enriched with many marine organisms that can filter a great volume of water. The concept of biofilter descript manipulation of these biofiltering organisms to improve water quality. One of the approaches could be deploying man-made structures with different shapes along the coastline to accumulate biofiltering organisms. This project aims at designing structures with a specific geometry to maximize the number and diversity of biofiltering organisms.
1 design, manufacture (3D print), and deploy the structure
2 record the abundance and diversity of organisms growing on the structure
3 record and analyze environmental parameters
1. Learn how to create 3D models for biofiltering
2. Learn how to analysis of environmental data and establish correlation model..
